I have being working in the AAA industry for tha last 3 years and the crunch is what is forcing me to find something else to do in life even if I love 3d. Some places may be more respectful with their employees but in my experience the crunch is even calculated in advance cause they know the workers will accept that. Some people is very passionate and don´t mind to do it and that is fine but a lot of people have families and they want to build a healthy environment with them or other goals outside the working ours. Not to mention non-payed overtime and other abuses I faced. Hope this industry fixs this problem.
Those tilesets are sexy. Seeing new tilesets is like getting introduced to a new lego set.
bitHeads built brainCloud because we were constantly re-building the same backend solutions for our customers – which they then had to host and maintain. The brainCloud Backend-as-a-Service is available for usage in bitHeads’ projects, and third party projects as well.
- Game Features – multiplayer, matchmaking, cloud saves, identity management, social integration, leaderboards, achievements, push-notifications, virtual currencies, and in-app purchasing.
- Advanced Pricing and Promotional Features – brainCloud provides support for multiple virtual currencies and coordinates the product and pricing management across all platforms, allowing the developer to quickly put items on sale with just a few clicks.
- Scheduled Promotions – sales can be preconfigured well into the future and when the promotion automatically triggers, players will receive notifications on their devices (in their language), and automatically get the preferential pricing when they go into their store screens.
- Advanced Auto Promotions – developers are able to define dynamic target segments of users and trigger individual promotions just for them. For example, a developer could define a promotion for “MVPs that may be leaving the game” and define the criteria as “players who’ve played more than 50 times, who’ve spent more than $20, and who haven’t played in the past 5 days”. Whenever a player enters this segment, a special “Promotion for MVPs” would be triggered, offering them a product at a huge discount in an attempt to keep them in the game longer.
The brainCloud Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) is perfect for cross-platform mobile development allowing you to make a game server, mobile app backend, or mobile game backend that works great with your Unity game. BrainCloud is the essential infrastructure that apps & games need, to offer a single and cohesive experience across any type of screen.
BrainCloud is free during development. Once the title goes live, you pay only for what you use. BrainCloud’s pricing is perfectly elastic – scaling up and down based on how much (or how little) your apps use our servers.
